About Face


An intimate view of the women whose images have defined our sense of beauty over the past five decades. An uncensored look at many of the biggest names in modeling, the movie reveals the stories behind the magazine covers displaying these multicultural pioneers. Each woman is candidly interviewed in the studio and shares her experiences, ideas on longevity, and philosophy of life in the fashion industry.

This is an interesting documentary on the concept of beauty and aging from the point of view of women who have been celebrated as being some of the most beautiful women in the world. These women graced the covers of Vogue, Harpers, Elle, Cosmo, etc when it counted and multiple times at that.
The first Black woman on the cover, the first Asian woman to appear in a high fashion magazine, the true trail blazers of the modeling world.
